Ilkley Moor Fell Race
Over 300 runners enjoyed this year’s Ilkley Moor Fell Race. Ilkley Harriers organise the race each year in February. Though only 5 miles it has a demanding course across rough terrain with steep climbs and ascents. Ilkley’s Tom Adams was the clear winner in 37:24 followed by Simon Bailey from Mercia Fell Runners in 38:02 and Joe Baxter from Pudsey and Bramley in 38:46. First lady was Bingley’s unstoppable Victoria Wilkinson in 42:58. First Horsforth Harrier home was Phil McGeever in 1:02:20. He was followed by James Mangeolles 1:14:40 and Serena Blackburn 1:16:59.
Liversedge Half Marathon
Just one Harrier made their way over to Kirklees for this year’s Liversedge Half Marathon. Victoria Brides crossed the line in 2:09:44 taking over a minute off her 2017 finish time.
